Regent5 Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI)
VDI is the most exciting concept to be introduced to the business technology landscape in the last decade. The platform is easy to understand. VDI is an infinitely scalable, cloud based super computer, that can be accessed from any computer, phone, or iPad in the world. Essentially, accessing the system is as simple as opening a website or application on your desktop. Provided you have a stable internet connection, you will be able to remotely control a computer that can handle any amount of workload without missing a beat! Even while providing up to 10 users with their own private desktop simultaneously. The beauty of this system is that the user only pays when they use the machine, allowing unrestricted access to a $10,000+ computer for the hourly price of a cup of coffee.
Why Regent5 VDI?
CAD applications are some of the most demanding workloads you can run; it takes millions of GPU and CPU cycles to complete the complex calculations needed to work with CAD models. Until recently, the only way to deliver that much power was for each engineer to have his own local workstation. This approach prohibited organizations from gaining the benefits that VDI can provide. But Regent5 with partnership of AWS and improved advancements in VDI industry, these prohibitions are no longer valid. There are many benefits to running CAD on a virtual desktop, but three of the most important ones are performance of mobility, survivability and security.
